Police are transitioning to a dispatch system for police services
Police are transitioning to a dispatch system for police services.
Chief of Police Timothy Wilson stated this new service will begin on Monday the 29th of June and will be provided by Telecom Niue Ltd and will provide for faster response times and safer working conditions for our staff.
Instead of calling the Niue Police at 4333 after normal business hours, you will ring 015 for non-emergencies and will ring 999 for emergencies. The dispatcher will ask several questions, depending on the reason for your call, and will contact the on-duty police staff by radio. The police staff will then respond based on the information obtained by the dispatcher.
“This change will assist us in better serving the community while enhancing our officers’ safety and is part of our larger goal of, together keeping Niue safe and secure.” said Wilson
